The articles questions to $400,000 salary, hiring practices, and student spending of the “non-profit” charter school in Dayton.

In addition to Pammer-Stow and her husband, who is the Chief Operating Officer, the schools employ a number of family members, including the CEO’s sister, son, daughter and daughter-in-law. The daughter works as the nonprofit’s human resources director, responsible for all hiring and firing.


“I have a problem with that, when one family is running things,” said Paul Woodard, whose son and daughter previously attended the Trotwood Preparatory and Fitness Academy.

Woodard is part of a self-described “Parent Action Committee” of former teachers and parents of former and current Trotwood Prep students. He said he was shocked at how much the top administrators were making, saying the school was too cheap to let his kids bring their textbooks home.

“What are you doing for these kids? They don’t have a dictionary. They don’t have computers,” he said.
